Health equity for all women
The national voice for women’s health
Our Guiding Principles
Our work is guided by feminism, gender equity, and human rights.
Priority 1: Policy and reform
AWHN is a national leader in developing, advancing, and responding to public policy and practice as it impacts on women’s health. We provide independent advice from a broad evidence-base to promote a gendered approach to women’s health care.
Priority 2: Connect and collaborate
AWHN is the vehicle for women’s health organisations, consumers and advocates to connect and collaborate through our membership base and effective processes to represent the views of members and their constituents.
Priority 3: Governance and agency
As an independent peak and health promotion charity, AWHN demonstrates best practice in its governance, leadership and operations.
